Why "in the end".

Nikon was quoting a service delay of four weeks ....... the seller was able to send another within seven days!

Fair enough - though Nikon retailers (assuming new) can get priority exchanges from Nikon in the UK.

Most experienced photographers quickly know when equipment is not working as it should.

Yes ..... that's exactly how I saw it ..... I discovered the AF issue after an testing wider angle lenses ...... about two hours or so ...... a few hours after receiving it .....

OK

see here Optical Limits review: ..... under bokeh fringing

It can be clearly seen the point of focus wide open is (100) ....... even given the increasing DOF when stopping down focus cannot hold the "100" in focus .........

It is clear to many focussing on a single line (as distinct from a single edge) - which seems the basis of the test - is not always reliable.

In lots of ways good photography is much more about how equipment is used rather than anything else.
